Introduced on the market in 2002, Honda Pilot is now in its 3rd
generation. The Japanese automobile manufacturer is planning to
revise the current model, so we are looking forward to a new
refurbished car. Carrying the name 2017 Honda Pilot, the
upcoming mid-size crossover SUV is expected to meet many
specific needs of customers.
2017 Honda Pilot – Exterior and Interior Redesign
According to the carmaker, the new honda pilot 2017 will
be based on the Honda CR-V concept. So we expect it to share a
lot of exterior features with this model. The car will however
get some serious modifications that will make it take true
looks of a modern-day crossover. The entire body will be
decorated with sleeker lines, contours and aerodynamics. A
picturesque grille, fine-tuned with chrome accents, will be
available in the front end of the 2017 Honda Pilot. Other
features in this end include: a bigger bumper, LED headlamps
& daytime running lights and remodeled air intakes. When it
comes to the rear end, the car will get a stylish bumper and
redesigned LED taillights. The sides will look more stunning
with new alloy wheels and beautiful door handles.
The interior of the 2017 Honda Pilot will be roomy enough to
fit 8 passengers as well as their luggage. With three rows of
seats, the upcoming Honda mid-size SUV will make a good family
car. As for the seats, we expect them to feature leather and
other soft materials. A heating and ventilation system will be
installed on the seats to make them more
comfortable. Technology wise, the Honda crossover SUV will
spot an 8-inch multimedia display screen on the center console.
Another display screen will be fitted on the ceiling to keep
passengers entertained. The honda pilot suv will be
equipped with other tech features such as Honda Connect running
Android and a host of connectivity options like Wi-Fi, USB
ports and Bluetooth. Both basic and advanced safety
features will be available to keep 2017 Honda Pilot safe and
secure. You should look forward to airbags, rearview camera,
emergency braking, seatbelts, traffic monitoring, collision
warning and adaptive cruise control.
2017 Honda Pilot – Engine and Performance
The new 2017 honda pilot will be equipped with a 3.5-liter
i-VTEC V6 engine. This powerhouse is capable of producing 285
hp and 270 lb-ft. It will be boosted by features such as
direct-fuel injection and a start/stop system. The engine
will be backed by a 6-speed or 9-speed automatic transmission,
allowing for both front-wheel and all-wheel drive.
The honda pilot will take 9.0 seconds to accelerate from

20 mpg in cities and 27 mpg on highways.

more. The highly refurbished model should not cost more than
$50,000. The car will hit showrooms and dealer shops in the
last months of 2016. The new Honda crossover will be
rivaled by cars such as Toyota Highlander, Ford Edge, Subaru Outback, Mitsubishi Outlander, Lexus GX,
